Abridged: When Will Palestine be returned to us–Shaikh Raslaan
In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
Shaikh Raslaan (may Allaah preserve him) said:
If Allaah bestows blessings upon a slave and he (the slave) wishes that it should continue and not cease, then it is obligatory upon him to be thankful to Allaah (The Mighty and Majestic) for it. However if he falls short (i.e. the falling short that takes place by way of neglect) in this, it (i.e. the blessing) is taken away and there comes about upon him humiliation and belittlement. This is what Allaah—The Lord of Mankind, Jinn and all that exists– has decreed and He made it His way in dealing (with the creation) in His universe. And there is no power or strength except with Allaah (The Exalted, The Tremendous One, The Magnificent]
When will Palestine be returned to us? When we return to Allaah (in correct creed, righteous action, obedience etc.) Palestine will be returned to us. Indeed, the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) also informed us that humiliation will befall the Ummah and that belittlement will surround its children (i.e. the sons and daughters of this Ummah) when they oppose the religion of their Lord and are isolated from following the Sunnah of the Prophet of (this Ummah). [He (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said: ”If you deal with usury (eena), and you hold onto the cow’s tails and you are content with agriculture, and you leave off Jihaad in the path of Allaah, Allaah will permit your humiliation and he will not remove that state from you until you return back to your religion.” [Reported by Imaam Abu Daawud (rahimahullaah) on the authority of Abdullaah Ibn Umar (radiyallaahu-anhumaa). Hadeeth Number 3462. Declared authentic by Imaam Albaanee (rahimahullaah) in As-Saheehah 11]
Therefore, there is no return to honour, there is no return and attainment of it (i.e. victory), except by way of a return to Allaah–The Lord of mankind, jinn and all that exists. [He (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam)] said: ”Until you return back to your religion’’—the religion that Muhammad (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) came with and the path that Muhammad (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) guided to.
Indeed what takes place today in Gaza is not (merely) an affair of support (needed from) humans and it is not an affair solely connected to humans in its entirety. It is not an affair (related to performing charitable good deeds, such as) what is entrusted to the people who display noble generosity—the people who spend freely, bestow gifts, show kindness and are open-handed. The affair is not (merely) about (performing) good actions, rather it is an affair of creed and it is an affair related to creeds. It is an affair related to creed in its origin and to the religion in its backbone.
It is not an affair stirred up by the disbelievers before the Muslims, for indeed the manifest emotionalism that has filled the whole world cannot benefit in anything. It is not the sound means that will lead to what is sought after. The unambiguous means (in achieving what is sought after) is neither hidden from one who has eyes nor from one who possesses insight. That is because (this emotionalism) is neither from the legislated means of the Islamic legislation in achieving what is sought after nor is it that which the beloved Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) guided us to.
